erikamd89 posted a topic in Adjustment of Status Case Filing and Progress ReportsHey Everyone! I did a search to see if anyone had already answered this question that I have but I did not see anything so here it goes: My husband and I put together all of the paperwork for his Adjustment of Status from an E-2 visa to a green card as we recently were married. We filed all of the following forms together into one packet: I-485, I-864, I-130, I-131 and I-765. We submitted around the end of July 2017 with e-notification forms attached to most documents. Here is the issue: I re-did his I-485 form before sending the packet due to a typo/error in one of his answers and accidently put his first name in the last name box and his last name in the first name box on the first page. All of his other paperwork has his first and last name in the correct boxes. He recently went to do his fingerprints at our local USCIS and they pointed this out to him. What is the right course of action to get this corrected? Has anyone else made this small error before? How did it affect the processing of the paperwork? We are freaked out because it costs so much money to file and we don't want to have crazy long delays as a result. We called the customer service hotline and she created a ticket but didn't give us any next steps. Thanks so much for your help!
janandmatt posted a topic in Adjustment of Status (Green Card) from K1 and K3 Family Based VisasMy i94 has my given name as my given name + my middle name. On the form i 485 question 25a-c is "Provide your name exactly as it appears on your Form I-94". 25.a. Family Name __My family name____ 25.b. Given Name __My first and middle name___ 25.c. Middle Name ______________ Should I call CBP / try to get my name changed on the I-94 to just my given name and not my given+middle together? Should I leave the question as is or write my middle name in 25.c. even though that's not "exactly" as it is on the i-94. Thank you.
So what had happened was: Immigrating husband entered on K-1 had one name Filed AOS with my last name thinking we could change his name based on marriage Mailed a letter to USCIS after getting NOA hard copies requesting name to be changed to the one on his visa (included copies of NOA's with letter) Three months later received an RFE for his EAD/AP for his name Sent another letter explaining and requested his name is reverted to the name on the visa and his GC case get updated too EAD/AP issued in name requested Applied for SSN A few weeks later, GC was issued!!! But then we saw that it was issued in the name we had on his petition (with my last name) Could not update SSN with GC because his name doesn't match Applied for FAFSA in old name (the one matching SSA) Rejected at the college because his GC name doesn't match his SSA or name on FAFSA Does anyone have any ideas for what to do next? We sent an expedite request based on financial loss and that request was expeditiously denied because it wasn't emergent enough. Should we contact a senator/congressional rep? I have tried calling FAFSA, and all they can say is to get the GC corrected. We have the I-90 submitted and 30 days in we have no biometric appointment, but we may have another five more months of waiting. He may need to take less classes than we had planned on him taking because the tuition is rather high. Should we submit another expedite request based on USCIS error? Thanks for any ideas! Oh, when I say he had one name, I mean that he only had one name and no first name. Believe me, everyone gets confused with it...
